Wausau Red

Creamy white quartz crystals bring elegance to the cardinal tones of this incredibly durable granite.  A staple of the natural stone marketplace since 1895, this deposit contains the only deep red granite of its kind in North America. Its rich appeal makes it ideal for exterior accents or interior focal points. The stone's combination of beauty and longevity is what has made it one of the monument industry's most popular materials.

Recommended for interior and exterior applications.  Including, but not limited to: interior accents, counter tops, tile, exterior paving, landscape stone, building veneer, wall panels, armor stone, crushed stone, and decorative aggregate.
